How does the search work in the GD collection? I wanted to hear Dark Hollow, so I searched for it and got no results. I tried a few other song names, years, and venues and still got no results.

Does this thing work at all?

Go to "Advanced Search": http://www.archive.org/advancedsearch.php

Enter "Dark Hollow" in the "Description" field and select "GratefulDead" for the "Collection". Should get you a few hits ;-).

Putting "Dark Hollow" in the description field works, but the only option in the drop down menu next to "Collection" is "All Collections". There's no way to narrow it down. Is this a feature or a bug?

Also, why is the regular search there if it doesn't work?

Click on the blue arrow next to all collections and then pick GD. I tried and a bunch of shows popped up.

Works now apparently, but when I posted that drop down menu was empty except for "All Collections"

I still don't understand why the non-advanced search doesn't work. Is it just there to confuse newbs?
